$47 million a year on Govt “spin doctors”

The SST reports on how in just five years the number of communications staff working for the Government has increased from 210 to 448, with heir wage bill alone growing to $47 million.

But remember if you wish to criticise the Government in a way which could encourage people not to vote for them, you have to register once you spend $12,000, and yes that includes the cost of any staff who work on producing your message.
